This is Dr. David
this means the prostate cancer was very close to the edge of what was cut out of his body,
when the prostate cancer is very very close to the edge of the prostate gland, there is a high chance that prostate cancer cells were left behind in the area of the surgery in his pelvis.
he could have return of his prostate cancer and elevation of his PSA levels after surgery.
he needs to see a radiation oncology doctor to see if he would benefit from radiation therapy for 6-7 weeks to his prostate bed to kill off the remainder cells left behind in his prostate bed.
